I meant "at image creation time". Of course, other users can be added
later at run time.

Probably the first user to be created at first boot (or at image
creation time: this may be decided by the vendor). Anyway, it's probably
the first 'real' user.

Yes. The privilege flag can be set for any user to make him/her a
privileged user. But only a privileged user can set the flag :)
NB: AFAIK, this is still WIP on Tizen:Common.

Yes, through gumd.

Yes. Other guests could be added, but why having more than one ?

Best regards.
